Why Older People And Men Like Kate Middleton?

A panel discussed Meghan Markle's podcast Archetypes on Talk TV. Royal commentator Daisy McAndrew weighed in on Middleton's popularity in certain demographics — older people and men. For her, people tend to gravitate toward the Duchess of Cambridge because she follows the Queen's mantra — "never complain, never explain."

"One of the reasons Katherine is so popular amongst certain demographics, and I'm going to say older people and men, is because she says absolutely nothing," said McAndrew. "She's a good little girl who keeps quiet and doesn't tell, doesn't complain, doesn't do anything. She doesn't rock the boat and is a very traditional, old-fashioned, mute woman."

On the other hand, Markle has received various criticisms for speaking up her mind and opening up about her family issues to the public.

"She's utterly clueless," Megyn Kelly said on GB News. "I am so sick of her tired, off-point, irrelevant musings about her non-problems. On a countrywide basis, we have people who cannot afford Thanksgiving turkeys. The cost of them has gone so high. They can't pay their gas and electric bills. They cannot buy gas, they cannot buy food the way they used to at the grocery store. And we're supposed to give a damn whether somebody's calling her the b-word or difficult, and we don't. She doesn't get it; no one gives a damn about these non-problems."
